Alaska - State Flag - For Outdoor Use
We have this Alaskan flag available in two materials. That means, no matter what the weather conditions are in your area, we've got you covered! This flag has a heading and grommet finish, which is standard for outdoor use flags.
- 100% MADE IN THE USA – The materials for our flags are sourced in the USA, then they are manufactured, assembled and finished in the USA.
- Flags manufactured in the USA provide you with a flag that is the highest quality in material, the brightest colors and design detail.
- NYLON FLAG MATERIAL – The 200-denier nylon is a tightly woven, high-quality material suitable for most weather conditions. Nylon is the ideal material for an all-purpose, all-weather flag because it provides a lightweight but durable flag which flies in the slightest breeze, yet dries quickly after getting wet.
- POLYESTER FLAG MATERIAL – Polyester flags are heavier than nylon and engineered for durability in high-wind conditions. This is accomplished because the material has an open weave to allow the wind to flow through the flag.
- NOTE ABOUT MULTI-FLAG DISPLAYS – When choosing which material to purchase, we recommend that all flags are the same material so that all flags fly consistently.
- FLAG FINISH - This flag has a heavy-duty heading and solid brass grommets, which is the standard finish for outdoor use.
- INTENDED USE - This flag is designed for outdoor use.

Alaska's state flag was adopted for official state use in 1959 and was designed in 1926 by a 13-year-old, 7th grade boy named Bennie Benson. The blue field represents the sky, the sea, the mountain lakes, and Alaska’s wildflowers. Emblazoned on the flag are eight gold stars: seven from Ursa Major (the Big Dipper or Great Bear constellation), used as a symbol of strength; and the eighth star is Polaris (the North Star), which symbolizes Alaska as the northernmost state and “the ever constant star for the mariner, the explorer, hunter, trapper, prospector, woodsman, and the surveyor..” (quote from legislation).
“Alaska’s Flag” is the Alaskan state song, officially adopted in 1955.
Eight stars of gold on a field of blue,
Alaska's flag, may it mean to you,
The blue of the sea, the evening sky,
The mountain lakes and the flowers nearby,
The gold of the early sourdough's dreams,
The precious gold of the hills and streams,
The brilliant stars in the northern sky,
The "Bear," the "Dipper," and shining high,
The great North Star with its steady light,
O'er land and sea a beacon bright,
Alaska's flag to Alaskans dear,
The simple flag of a last frontier.
